that congressman boehner's comments suggest a willingness to agree to the president's position. we all use the middle class as a political football but extends the tax cuts for the middle class fairly quickly to give them certainty and make sure they know they will get help in tough economic times. >> you know there are plenty of people out there, including peter orszag, who until recently, your director of office of management and budget saying there should be tax increases for nobody. now is not the time to be increasing taxes. >> well, harry, i understand what peter argues, he argues we should extend the middle-class tax cuts for two years and have them expire. he believes if the price of doing that is having to extend the upper-end tax cuts that's what we should do. that's not the president's position because, let's be clear, harry, the tax cuts for the upper end, the wealthy, mostly millionaires, that's a $700 billion proposition the next ten years. the president does not believe that we should be borrowing $700 billion, most likely from overseas, to extend tax cuts follow folks, quit
's collapse and the ensuing crisis led to a new push to make banks safer. in the u.s. a sweeping financial reform bill signed into law in july imposed stricter capital requirements on banks, yet largely left u.s. regulators to determine those levels. now new international standards may be on the way. this weekend in basil, switzerland, central bankers from 27 countries including ben bernanke agreed to new rules that included substantially raising amount of capital that banks must hold in reserve. banks in the u.s. currently must hold about 2% of their assets in capital or equity to absorb losses in the event of runs or financial panics. under the so-called basil-3 agreement the new international standard would be 7% of assets. but banks would have until 2019 to implement it. the head of the european central bank said the move would help protect against another meltdown. >> what we have decided is commensurate to permit when we have all the standards in place to make the banking sector at a global level much more resilient. and i would say we think we are commensurate to the shocks that we
for the evening are here with us. let's get to it. josh, first question. mr. binnie, first response. >> we're here to talk about the issues. the tone of this race has become an issue. a lot of people say it has been one of the nastiest primary races in recent memory in new hampshire. where do you draw the line between an honest critique -- of their critique of your opponents background and nasty campaigning? >> it is a pleasure to be here tonight. it has been my pleasure to run for the united states senate. the people of new hampshire have gotten to know me. my dad introduced me over nine months ago. folks understand that i care about the job and the economy. when i became the frontrunner in the august, we were attacked by all kinds of private organizations. i thought that was not fair. i did not like it. not for amnesty. i am a liberal. ask my kids. what i am about is talking and dealing with the economic crisis that new hampshire is experiencing. we need jobs in our state. that is what i want to talk about. they do not care about these ads. they want to hear our policies and our background and h
's operated as his father's pawn. he's accusing him of conning us to elect him president. what do you make of newt, howard? >> i've been covering newt for many years. he's a bomb thrower. he's a guy who knows the weak point to attack. what's interesting to me here is he feels free to say anything at this point. it's a kind of free fire zone within the conservative movement. and newt, who's always trying tu say the most outrageous thing and that goes back many, many years, now has moved from saying outrageous things about the ethics of the house members in the democratic leadership 15, 18 years ago, to saying these thin about a man that newt himself has no evidence for what he's alleging here.te he really has absolutely none. his facts are wrong. as mr. weigepointed out on his page and i'm just really not surprised, but kind of depressed by it. >> david, you covered this kind of spiritual territory. ideological territory. he's accusing as basically a zombie. saying his father hated the british white guys. his son is kind of a zombie like figure. in fact governed by a ghost. this is the kind

[laughter] you need to let people know what a good job you're doing. it's horn-tooting, and hispanics hate to do that. i think we are our own worst enemy. we are not naturally assertive. we are naturally hard workers, but we don't naturally market ourselves. >> so we had andrea try it. >> it was enormously hard work getting to where i am. i am grateful that i am in a position to help my family when they need help. i can't tell you how proud i am that i made it. i got to the goal line. whoo-hoo! and i certainly hope that my grandparents are looking down, going, "see, see? we should have gone to california." >> andrea had so much insight into protecting your identi
